Baby Black

Book Two, Story Five

Baby Black is a very small cat at my farm. She stayed small even when she grew up. “BB,” as I call her, has only one eye from birth, and her whiskers are white on one side and black on the other, just like in the story…her looks are very odd, or, special, I would say. Baby Black is very affectionate and loves to be petted, although she is feral and does not like to be picked up. She hops and leaps to me when she first sees me at the barn, a very special welcome. It’s always a joy to see her! You can read about Baby Black on my blog (www.greenappleacres.com, menu item “On the Farm”). The character in this story is a combination of Baby Black and Sugar, the cat with the crooked tail (you can also read about Sugar on my blog), another cat at my barn. Sugar’s crooked tail makes her walk sideways sometimes. She does not have the balance of other cats with straight tails, but she gets along fine. Sugar also hops and leaps to see me when I go to the barn. Sugar is also feral, but she loves to be picked up and petted. Although Baby Black is a female feline at my farm, I made her a male cat in the story.

What Our Readers Say…

My great niece, Gianna, loves animals and I knew the Adventures at Green Apple Acres book series would be a wonderful Christmas gift for her, so I purchased all three books. Gianna read the stories in all three books and enjoyed all of the adventures of the farm animals. To add to the excitement, I arranged a visit to Cynthia’s farm for Gianna and me. Gianna got to meet Shiloh! Those two bonded like they knew each other forever! We could tell in Gianna’s eyes during our visit that she was on top of the world! Many of the animals at Cynthia’s farm are in the stories of her books. Thank you, Cynthia, for writing these stories. The stories not only give children an opportunity to escape into another world, but also, they teach life lessons. Gianna and I are looking forward to future books and more adventures for the animals on the farm!
